Is it just me or has West never been less transparent? Back in a day, we more or less knew what was happening but now the fact that it is impossible to even guess what is really happening adds to the stress. Instead of relaxing for the holidays... — read more
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any West Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
How does your company wish you happy holidays? Christmas bonus perhaps? Nope...not here. How about a layoff just before the holiday season? Nothing better to lift your spirits!
They have laid off some operators from here as well as other call centers today.
They told us to come get our stuff and leave a box for our new desks because they are remodeling every floor to “keep headquarters in Omaha” the reality is they have 2 bids on both buildings and Intrado headquarters is moving obviously. We will be... — read more

Apparently there was a division meeting in L&S recently, and I saw some people confusedly questioning a timeframe of "two months" in conversations after that relating to something discussed in the meeting. What's this all about? Any clues? What... — read more

If you aren't happy at West / Intrado....QUIT. Stop spending time posting here and spend more time reading, educating, learning, applying for new jobs and get out of here. We don't need the negative types here any longer. You know the drill and... — read more

Facing a hurricane and they’ll expect us to maintain our closed call rates
Is the September layoff likely to happen?
